You’d think the ref would have more respect for this fed up keeper who hunts down a pitch invader, grabs him by the back of the shirt, and marches him off the field like a put-upon teacher escorting an unruly student to the principal’s office, but instead of thanks, Mohamed Sokhra only received a red card for his… »
It could have been the perfect crime. Justin Buchanan, 19, dashed onto the field at last night’s Cubs-Reds game (while filming himself the entire way), tried to say hi to Billy Hamilton, tossed his phone onto the grass over the centerfield wall, hopped the fence, clambered up into the seats, and disappeared into the… »

Most sports fans already know that storming the field of play in anger is A) tacky; B) stupid; and C) dangerous. One particular Honduran fan, unconcerned with those realities, took the pitch wearing what looks like a Santa hat and was dealt a swift, acrobatic kick to the face by a player.
A series of Idiots On The Field led to a lengthy delay in St. Louis tonight as Busch Stadium security tried to corral the hooligans who interrupted tonight’s Cubs-Cardinals matchup. Here’s some video of a fan committing trespassing The Right Way: »
Of all the sporting events this guy could’ve interrupted by streaking, he chose rugby? The sport that specializes in the body type and love of inflicting pain that the security guys who’d normally hunt down a streaker aspire to emulate?
